Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality series about a suburban pawnshop that caters to women includes some occasional strong language ("ass," "bitch"), but is otherwise pretty mild. The show presents some rather stereotypical ideas about what women like to buy and includes plenty of discussion about the differences between the sexes. That said, kids likely won't be that interested unless they have a strong interest in collectibles.
Is It Any Good?
The reality docuseries allows viewers to see what's involved in the pawning process, which includes knowing how to identify quality collectibles and understanding their market value. It also shows how important it is to be aware of the actual profit pawnshop owners can earn from these items after they are refurbished. Some of the tension in the show comes from the risks the owners take when trying to buy and resell items. The stability of the business is often shaken, but the owners do their best to demonstrate that pawnshops can make a profit by catering to middle-class suburban women.
Though the show sends some stereotypical messages about what women are supposed to find appealing and/or important, ff viewers can get past this, they will find that the show, like the shop, is a pretty friendly place.
